Passive broadband network operator Qatar National Broadband Network Company (QNBN) has signed an agreement with Swedish technology provider Ericsson to deploy its fibre-to-the-x (FTTx) infrastructure across Qatar, with rollout to start ‘immediately’. QNBN’s passive network will provide equal and open access to operators while offering a choice of service provider for the end-user. Qatar’s government established QNBN in 2011 to accelerate the rollout of a nationwide high speed, accessible fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network, and it aims to provide fibre access to citizens and businesses, targeting 95% coverage.
